UX Design for an Ageing Population

According to the U.N. World Population Prospect, 8% of the world population is over 65. The same study predicts that until 2050 that percentage will double to 16%. With the increase in an ageing world population, UX designers have to take those aspects into account and can’t afford to ignore their needs. This UXDiscuss we’ll be looking at UX Design for an Ageing Population and how best to serve them.

The #uxdiscuss event will be held on 16 November 2017 (16/11/2017) at 1pm UK time (8am Eastern US).

The questions we will be discussing are:

  1. What are the key UX considerations when designing for an ageing, global population?
  2. What are the UX challenges of designing an ageing population?
  3. Which sites, apps, products, etc. are well designed to adapt to users as they age?

The questions will be posted to Twitter via @uxdiscuss using the hashtag #uxdiscuss and all you have to do is join in.

We look forward to seeing you then!
